Leeds United forward Eddie Nketiah has been in the news this week.

Leeds United owner Andrea Radrizzani looks on during the Sky Bet Championship match between Millwall and Leeds United at The Den on September 16, 2017 in London, England.

Leeds United owner Andrea Radrizzani has hit back at worries the club could lose Eddie Nketiah.

Nketiah scored a hat-trick for England's under-21 side this week, showing the potential which stands him out as a future Arsenal star.

He is on loan at Leeds at present but has not started a single Championship game.


The Sun reported this weekend that Leeds could lose him, with Bristol City keen to renew interest in January. Any decision would come down to Arsenal.

After his England under-21 hat-trick, a Leeds fan urged Radrizzani to make sure Leeds play Nketiah and don't lose him.

Radrizzani responded with some irritation, indicating he believes the reports are fake news.

The decision over playing Nketiah is down to Leeds manager Marcelo Bielsa.

As we reported last night, Arsenal do not have a strong precedent for switching loan players' clubs mid-season.
